    Which PlayStation 4 driving games are on the podium?

    Below is a list of best ps4 racing games . presented without a specific order , these are our favorite PS4 games in the genre, as determined by our editorial team.



    Gran Turismo Sport

    Editor: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: Polyphony DigitalRelease date of: October 17, 2017 (USA) / October 18, 2017 (UK / EU)

    Sony's flagship racing franchise has been evolving steadily since launch and now finds itself at the front of the pack. 

    Polyphony Digital has fixed launch day concerns with regular free updates, while its excellent online handling and racing model remains best-in-class. It also feels light years ahead of the competition at times - especially on supercharged PS4 Pro hardware.

    Horizon Chase Turbo

    Editor: Acquiris / Developer: AcquirisRelease date of: May 15, 2018 (USA) / May 15, 2018 (UK / EU)

    This indie arcade racing title may not sound like much, but it's a surprisingly good little game with acres of content. Inspired by 90s racers like Top Gear and OutRun, the game features hundreds of races, plenty of unlockable cars to use and upgrade, and a handful of modes to master. 



    What's more, you can play everything in split-screen local multiplayer. Horizon Chase Turbo is an ultra-fast and addictive racing driver that overcomes its weight.

    MotoGP 20

    Editor: Milestone / Developer: MilestoneRelease date of: April 23, 2020 (USA) / April 23, 2020 (UK/EU)

    If you prefer two wheels over four, Milestone's latest licensed motorcycling title is King of the Road. With all the official teams, drivers and venues from this year's season, this tough racing simulator offers a severe challenge as you compete for Grand Prix glory. 

    It offers a severe challenge and doesn't hold your hand, which makes it a little difficult to get into. However, there's a lot to like about this game, including historical content that showcases the sport's most famous faces. Worth trying.

    GRID

    Editor: Codemasters / Developer: CodemastersRelease date of: October 11, 2019 (USA) / October 11, 2019 (UK / EU)

    This PS4 reboot sees the return of a series with a bumpy history. Fortunately, GRID on PS4 is a solid racing game that recaptures some of the franchise's magic. Handling is great, finding a perfect balance between arcade and simulation, and the career mode is robust, with plenty of variety in its event types. 

    Repetition can occur when you start seeing the same tracks over and over, and the game lacks a certain spark, but the central racing action makes it worth your time.



    Drive Club

    Editor: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: Evolution StudiosRelease date of: October 7, 2014 (USA) / October 10, 2014 (UK / EU)

    DriveClub's history is fascinating. It took a while, but it eventually evolved from a botched launch title into a content-packed racing game. The presentation remains impressive years later, and the “simcade” handling is a great balance that offers enough of a challenge but doesn't put off more casual petrolheads. 

    Throw in the Bikes expansion, the brilliant social features, VR support, and one of the most generous season passes available, and you have a racing driver. Unfortunately, it was pulled from the PS Store and its online servers were prematurely terminated. A sad ending to a roller coaster story – but a great game nonetheless.

    Hotshot racing

    Editor: Digital Curve / Developer: Lucky Mountain GamesRelease date of: September 10, 2020 (USA) / September 10, 2020 (UK / EU)

    There are some decent arcade racers on the PS4, but Hotshot Racing is absolutely one of the best. Returning to SEGA's blue skies and the charm of Virtua Racing and Daytona USA, the game is a high-speed, power-sliding dream. 

    Handling is precise, runs flawlessly and has some lovely track designs. Featuring a handful of championships to conquer and a bunch of modes to experience in split-screen or online, this is a blast for racing fans tired of all the sims out there.



    Wreckfest

    Editor: THQ Nordic / Developer: Bugbear EntertainmentRelease date of: August 27, 2019 (USA) / August 27, 2019 (UK/EU)

    Bugbear Entertainment is back with a bombastic new racing game that's all about destruction. With a realistic, physics-based damage modeling system, Wreckfest brings your dreams of a new Destruction Derby game to life in style. 

    It has some technical issues, but with surprising variety in its gameplay and a unique brand of crazy action, it's well worth a spin.

    Burnout Paradise Remastered

    Editor: Electronic Arts / Developer: Criterion GamesRelease date of: March 16, 2018 (USA) / 16 March 2018 (UK/EU)

    EA's first foray into the remaster sees the triumphant return of one of the kings of arcade racing. 

    Burnout Paradise was ahead of its time on PS3 in many ways, and this remaster proves it; its updated visuals look good, the open world racing is as slick and fast as ever and the innovative online features are still better than most. 

    With all the DLC included and an addictive range of events and collectibles, this 10-year-old racer will keep you strapped to your seat for hours on end.

    DiRT Rally 2.0

    The Best Weapons in V Rising: A Guide to All Weapons and…

    Editor: Codemasters / Developer: CodemastersRelease date of: February 26, 2019 (USA) / 26 February 2019 (UK/EU)

    Building on the brilliant hardcore experience introduced in the first DiRT Rally, the sequel is another tough but excellent racing game from Codemasters. The handling is relentless at first, but it's wonderfully satisfying to master, and the feeling of driving at insane speeds through treacherous rally routes is exhilarating. 

    The inclusion of Rallycross adds some variety to the mix, and a few minor refinements to the gameplay make this an essential purchase for rally fans.

    Onrush

    Editor: Codemasters / Developer: Codemasters EvoRelease date of: June 5, 2018 (USA) / June 5, 2018 (UK/EU)

    From the people who brought us MotorStorm and DriveClub, this loud and colorful arcade racer paves its way to the finish lines for team-based matches that focus on objectives. 

    All vehicle classes have unique abilities that will help your team or thwart the opposition, and they all complement each other as you fight for victory in any of the four modes. It's a unique, bold and action-packed game that's a breath of fresh air on a platform as hungry for arcade racers as the PS4.

    Team Sonic Racing

    Editor: SEGA / Developer: Sumo DigitalRelease date of: May 21, 2019 (USA) / May 21, 2019 (UK / EU)

    The PS4 hasn't had many good arcade racers throughout its life, so the arrival of Team Sonic Racing is a pleasant surprise. Like Onrush, this kart driver emphasizes teamwork but keeps cooperation restricted to regular races. 

    The collaborative aspects are very successful and even if you don't like the idea, you can also play as a standard kart driver. It's not the most elaborate racing game on the PS4, but the action on the track is undeniably a lot of fun.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered

    Editor: EA Games / Developer: stellar entertainmentRelease date of: November 6, 2020 (USA) / November 6, 2020 (UK / EU)

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered revives Criterion-developed cops and robbers racer on PS4, and it's more than welcome. While the visuals aren't the best these days, the gameplay holds up wonderfully. 

    It's an edge-to-edge arcade racing title, high speeds, epic drifts through extreme turns, and slow-motion security cameras make it more like Burnout than NFS. Still, it's a cunning and highly entertaining game, whether you're chasing down pilots and installing spike strips or evading the police with evasive action. The Autolog system that constantly pits you against your friends is the icing on the cake.

    F1 2021

    Editor: Electronic Arts / Developer: CodemastersRelease date of: July 16, 2021 (USA) / 16 July 2021 (UK/EU)

    F1 2021 is probably the best simulation of motorsport so far. Codemasters has been steadily improving and adding to their Formula One formula, uh, for several years now, and this year's edition is a stopper. 

    Faithful recreations of cars and tracks are great, and the extensive Career and My Team modes are very deep. New additions like the Brake Point story mode and the ability to play Career in co-op make this entry super accessible too.

    DIRT 5

    Editor: Codemasters / Developer: CodemastersRelease date of: November 6, 2020 (USA) / November 6, 2020 (UK / EU)

    Codemasters' latest entry in the DIRT franchise separates itself from the Rally sim-like sub-series, instead taking things in the opposite direction. The result is a blatantly arcade off-road racing game, with great presentation and easy handling. 

    Working on the campaign is fun, with multiple vehicles and events to master, and everything is delivered with a story subtly bubbling in the background. Decent multiplayer and a robust level editor complete the package. It's a simple game but a real blast to play.

    Wipeout Omega Collection

    Editor: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: SCE XDev Studio EuropeRelease date of: June 6, 2017 (USA) / June 7, 2017 (UK/EU)

    The grandfather of anti-gravity racing makes a triumphant return to PlayStation with a stunning remaster that brings together content from WipEout HD, Fury, and 2048. The fast, fluid racer plays beautifully, looks beautiful, and performs like a shiny metal dream. 

    The recently added VR support is also incredibly well implemented, making this an even better package for PSVR owners. While we would have preferred an entirely new entry into the franchise, it serves as a great reminder of why WipEout is so loved by fans.

    WRC10 (PS4)

    Editor: nacon / Developer: Kt racingRelease date of: September 2, 2021 (USA) / September 2, 2021 (UK / EU)

    WRC games have advanced by leaps and bounds over the years, and the latest release is probably the best on PS4. This is an officially licensed rally sim with all the courses, cars and names you'd expect. 

    With a super-deep career mode, you'll start at the bottom and work your way up to the fastest vehicles while managing your team. The race itself is pleasantly intense and perhaps a little more forgiving than DiRT Rally 2.0. It's a little rough around the edges, but WRC 10 has it where it counts.

    Need for Speed ​​Heat

    Editor: Electronic Arts / Developer: Ghost GamesRelease date of: November 8, 2019 (USA) / November 8, 2019 (UK / EU)

    Need for Speed ​​Heat brings the series back on track after some troubled matches on PS4. During the day, you will participate in sanctioned races in Palm City. 

    At night, you resort to illegal street racing to build your representative, but this will attract the attention of the brutal police force. 

    Balancing these two sides of the game is its main strength, but overall it's a fun open world arcade racing game with great customization and lots of cars to choose from. It's not perfect, but it's still the best Need for Speed ​​in quite some time.
